Joint CETIS-TechDis Accessibility and CETIS Assessment SIG Meeting

The Joint CETIS-TechDis Accessibility SIG and CETIS Assessment SIG Meeting will be held at the University of Wales Bangor, on Tuesday 27th June 2006. There is no charge for attending the meeting and lunch will be provided.

The meeting will have the theme of "Accessible Assessment" and will seek to raise the issues, which still need to be addressed in this area. Although there are several presentations, discussion will be a major part of this meeting. By holding a joint meeting of assessment and accessibility enthusiasts, it may be possible that possible solutions to some of the issues will arise as a result of the discussion and networking sessions.

The agenda will include:

  • e-Assessment and Accessibility - TechDis. Details to be confirmed.

  • Future Accessibility Work - Andy Heath, Axelrod Consultancy. Andy will give a brief overview of future accessibility work and related issues.

  • Accessible e-Assessment: Issues and Experiences - John Kleeman, Questionmark. As a starting point for the discussion, Questionmark's chairman will describe some of the issues with making e-assessment accessible.

  • Discussion. The issues raised throughout the day and during John Kleeman's session will be discussed.

If you would like to attend, please complete the Registration Form.
